Canandaigua motorcyclist airlifted after serious crash shuts down Parrish St. Extension

Deputies say a motorcyclist is in stable condition after a serious crash in the town of Canandaigua on Tuesday resulted in Parrish Street Extension being shut down for an extended period of time.

First responded to the area of 5201 Parrish Street Extension in the town of Canandaigua for the report of a single-vehicle crash with injuries around 4 p.m.


Deputies say Terrance Baird, 61, of Canandaigua was operating a Harley Davidson motorcycle, traveling northeast, when it left the roadway. Baird was said to not be traveling at a speed that was reasonable or prudent for the roadway, and was ejected from the motorcycle.

Baird suffered injuries to his left arm and several abrasions to his arms and legs. He was transported to Thompson Hospital where he was then airlifted to Strong Memorial Hospital.


Deputies say the operator was issued citations for failure to reduce speed and will answer the charge at a later date.

Baird is listed in stable condition at Strong Memorial Hospital, according to deputies. They say Parrish Street Extension was shut down from Route 5&20 to Route 21 for approximately one hour as first responders worked the scene.

Deputies say New York State Police, the Cheshire Fire Department, and Canandaigua Emergency Squad all assisted at the scene.
